OANDA: The Currency Site

As exams wind down, thoughts may turn to study abroad and other foreign travel in 2008. If foreign travel is in your plans, be sure to visit OANDA first. This helpful site for both currency traders and travelers offers a wide array of currency calculation tools and financial resources, but anyone can appreciate its "Leisure Traveler" section. One of my favorite OANDA features is the "Travelers Currency Cheat Sheet." For each country you plan to visit, just insert your home currency in the converter and a wallet-size printable conversion table for a range of amounts (at the official, cash or typical credit card rate) is produced to carry with you. I also recommend the clothing size tables (for humans only, of course), and the temperature and measure converters. OANDA is a one-stop traveler's resource that will save time, money and frustration in other countries while you focus on enjoying your trip.
